Ehteraam/ Ehteram/ Ehtram/ Ehtaram Meaning

Ehteraam or Ehteram [Devnagari:एहतराम,Urdu:احترام] is an Urdu, Arabic and Persian (Farsi) word which means respect. The word is used in all three languages, and can be found in old Hindi film songs and ghazals quite easily.

As can be expected, it was considered a word of regular vocabulary of people in the Northern regions of India until a few decades ago, but now the usage of the word in the Indian movies as well as in general language is negligible.
